“The Navy SEALs brought an expert in stretching and advanced physical and mental training methods to our base in 2010. I learned his methodology and I did it for weeks, then months, then years. I am still doing it today. Joe Hippensteel, thanks for showing me the proper way to stretch. It's truly changed my life.”

Dwight Freeney, NFL All-Star

"Joe Hippensteel has been AMAZING for my football career. After a devastating quad tendon tear at 34 years old, I didn’t know if I’d ever play again. Doing the UHP program made me feel 5 years younger and cleared up the tendonitis I battled for over a decade in less than a month."

Joe Hippensteel, a Master in Physio-Kinesiology, focuses on Ultimate Human Performance (UHP) at the highest levels. He spent many years training for the Decathlon at a national level. Due to his size (or lack thereof), and lack of God given talent, his accomplishments were developed through extremely hard work and creative, extremely advanced methods of training over a 30 year period. The Decathlon (10 events in Track and Field contested over 2 days) is considered one of the most grueling of all sports and because of the diversity of skills needed, is extremely difficult to train for...

Jason H.

I have not walked for over four years because of a neurological disorder. After only two sessions with Joe, I am walking. Honestly! He is a miracle worker.

B.P., Navy SEAL

I’ve watched 7 Navy SEALs with chronic injuries perform maneuvers and positions that they couldn’t perform only an hour before. I can lift and squat more now because my body isn’t fighting itself. Incredible pain resolution. Watch 55-year-olds regain the flexibility of 18-year-olds.

Don L., Former U.S. Marine

I’m a former US Marine. As an 18-year-old jarhead, I never imagined the pain I’d suffer in my 40’s by not taking better care of my body. I experienced chronic pain cycles for eleven years, but then I met Joe. After just one session, I can see light at the end of the tunnel.

Michael Platzer, Tennis Germany

"While looking into alternatives to having shoulder surgery, I found Joe Hippensteel. He fixed my shoulder (torn labrum) in just a few weeks. I went from excruciating pain, to no pain by following his Ultimate Human Performance training methods."


"This program needs to train 50+ providers, be initiated in great lakes, incorporated into BUD/s and become "natural" to SEALs--as an expected baseline."

Brian Young, Tennis Pro

"At age 53, after seven knee surgeries and making the decision to get knee replacement surgery and accepting that I'll never play tennis again, Joe changed my life in 1 week. I play tennis now 4 days / week with no pain or surgery."


"This is the greatest therapy or modality I have found in 5 years of trying to correct my physical issues. I am grateful that UHP exists and is here to help us."


"Preventive maintenance is ideal for any operator and by preventing injury would extend the operator's operational life and save the community a lot of resources and money. Strongly recommend this to anyone."
